I'd expect number editing to work like an IME editing text: The user sees intermediate editing states but the value is committed to the DOM only when the user has finished editing. Thus, to type "20" on a form with min=10, when the user has pressed '2', the user would see the digit 2 but the DOM would still have the old value.
